Eileen Merriman is a prolific writer for young adults. Three of her novels, Pieces of You, Catch Me When You Fall and Invisibly Breathing, have explored sensitive themes such as bullying, gay relationships, illness, mental health and self harm. Her latest, A Trio of Sophies, examines what happens when boundaries are crossed between a teacher and a student. The author discusses the perils and rewards of writing for teens with fellow young adult writer Karen Healey.
